Samsung Galaxy s3 Signal Issues

Journeyman

Re: Samsung Galaxy s3 Signal Issues

I upgraded to the Samsung S3 from my Evo.  Signal was great on my Evo even on 3G.  Now with the S3, I'm getting "No Internet Connection Try Again" very frequently and text messages fail often.  I'm getting 1 to no signal bars where I used to have at least 3 or full strength on my Evo.    Is there any fix / something that can be done - perhaps a free replacement to another type of phone from Sprint?

Re: Samsung Galaxy s3 Signal Issues

if your screen name is also your phone number you might want to change that seeing as how this is a public forum and now EVERYONE knows it lol..

more a FYI than anything.

anywho...for those of you having the signal issues..post your zip and closest cross streets so tower issues can be ruled out or not..DO NOT POST YOUR PHYSICAL ADDRESS

Re: Samsung Galaxy s3 Signal Issues

most have said that theyre getting the same signal strengths between the old evo and the SIII/EVO LTE...but its showing 1 less bar..do you have any reception at all? can you make a call or get data when its showing no bars?

also the bar graphs are by not as accurate as people think..

This is good to know since I am considering the GS3.

I will add my name to the list. Signals is horrible. I've put an EVO next to it for comparison. EVO had two bars. S3 had nothing. Severely regretting my decision to overlook the warnings about Samsung radios.

Re: Samsung Galaxy s3 Signal Issues

Trying the app called open signal, gives you the % of connection and shows you where the towers are. going to install on EVO and S3 and compare. Will post results.
